Dylan’s Candy Bar is a national chain of high-end designer candy emporiums conceived by Ralph Lauren’s daughter, Dylan. With maybe a dozen stores scattered between New York and Los Angeles, the brand’s flagship store on Lexington Avenue merges the worlds of art, fashion and pop culture with candy so successfully, it is like Willy Wonka exploded in your face.
A stand out feature the Lexington Avenue location is the Candy Embedded Staircase that connects the main floor with the basement level. These are the kind of details you can add to a retail space design when money is no object.
My teeth hurt just looking at these photos of Lucite stairs studded with Gummy Candy, Lollipops, Swedish Fish and Candy Corn.
I see this truck — which I affectionately call The Pot Truck — parked around my neighborhood all the time. It sells THC-infused hard candy (in the form of lollipops) and most likely other types of green things. Today It was parked at 14th Street and First Ave right by Stuyvesant Town, so I spotted it right away as I got off the bus. As I took this photo with my iPad, the proprietor, shall we say, walked around the side of the truck and made this friendly gesture at me! If you squint, you can just make out the phone number you need to call to contact the friendly people in the Pot Truck. Apparently, they deliver.
